Voyage à Paris | Town Hall, Bayfield, ON
Music by a variety of composers to evoke the capital city of France

date: May 13, 2006

A third fundraising concert for the Bayfield Town Hall presented three promising young Toronto-based singers in a sequence of songs and operatic excerpts evoking Paris in various eras, from medieval to modern times.  The afternoon ended with an uproarious excerpt from Cole Porter’s Can-Can and was followed by dinner for all at the Red Pump.
